Happy Sunday lovelies, I hope you’ve had an amazing day. Today I was at work and this evening I decided to almost kill myself by going on a long walk (such a bad idea when you’re really unhealthy!) I’ve just got home and thought I would write this post hence why it’s later then usual.
So I know this is a bit of a spare of the moment post, but I thought I would give you a little update as to what is going on and why so many things are changing. If you haven’t noticed anything new, then check out my Instagram because I always post a story to keep you in the loop. Speaking of Instagram, I’ll start there in terms of what’s going to be happening and make my way down my list.
I have such a great theme going on at the moment which consists of 3 blog related posts, 3 quotes and then 3 selfies and I have kept that theme going (well done me!) but now that’s changing. As of Wednesday, I will be posting twice a day on Instagram. Once early in the morning and again at around 8pm that evening. This means my theme will change slightly, but do not worry! I am creating a little gap between my old theme and my new theme and I’m hoping after a few posts, you’ll all enjoy my content.
I have also designed some new highlights and I plan on using them frequently, I will also be posting to my story everyday even if it is not highlight related. I plan on running polls, doing q&a’s and genuinely being more active on there. I am so close to 500 followers too which for me is a huge deal, so if you don’t follow me, I’d love it if you would.
I have changed my Twitter slightly, nothing too major! I use Twitter every day, eve when I don’t share one of my posts, I am doing my best to interact with you all. As far as Twitter goes, I plan on doing what I am doing now, just changing the time that I tweet though. I will always retweet your posts if I see them on my timeline (feel free to tag me in the tweet!) I will comment, reply to DM’s, go on a mad stalker spree and like half a dozen of your tweets. I am genuinely active on there so nothing in that respect will change. I just made a new header and a new profile picture and changed my username to Alanna instead of A.
Not many of you seem to know that I use Snapchat a lot as a way to share my blog links. I post about my everyday life too which mainly consists of cute selfies, but my Snapchat is open so anyone can read my stories. If you’d like to follow me, my username is Alannajhollamby.
I don’t know if any of you follow me on here either, but I have changed everything, I deleted everything that I had uploaded and started fresh. I currently don’t have anything posted, but I am going to me making boards and adding to them, I just need to plan what boards would be useful and what you would actually like to see.
I am working really hard on building my Facebook page. I have deleted the old content, changed the header, the name, the style and the profile picture. I will be posting on there twice a day 5 days a week (so not on the weekends) and hopefully this will become a great way to bring in an audience. I wont just be sharing blog posts on there, it will be pictures, quotes, mini updates etc. I am just trying to get my name out there a but more and have active social medias that are enjoyable.
I spoke briefly spoke about this yesterday, but I have made a whole new channel, I have deleted my old one and created a place I knew I would love to post on. As of May, I will be uploading vlogs every Wednesday and Sunday at 6pm. The plan is I do a 2 day vlog (Monday and Tuesday) and upload that, then do another 2 day vlog for Sunday (Thursday and Friday). This channel will only be for vlogs (hence the name) but I still hope you follow along my life journey. I also plan on hosting a giveaway when I reach 50 subscribers so if you could all head over and subscribe and share with your friends that would be great.
In May, I am going to turn this blog self hosted. I haven’t really looked into it in full detail yet and I know there is a lot of things I need to learn before I make that move but I am finally doing it. The reason for this is that I want my blog to become a second job for me. That may not happen right now because I don’t have thousands of followers, but that’s my ultimate goal. I am of course so grateful to have all of you supporting me and making this such an enjoyable place, I wouldn’t have the opportunities I have without any of you so you are all to thank for that. In just 5 months, we have grown so much and every day I find new supporters and lovely messages from you all. This blog is a success because of you and I hope you know that!
I think that is it update wise, I’m not sure that I have anything else to add to that part, expect I would really appreciate it if you would check out all the links and follow/subscribe to any accounts that you don’t follow. Now before I go, I would just like to dedicate this part to Clover.
Clover nominated me for a tag which I really appreciate and I don’t want to seem ungrateful but I am going to pass this tag on because I feel the post wouldn’t connect with my audience due to my current content. So what I am asking is for you to head over to Clover’s page, give it a follow and read her post and take part. I would love if you could tag me if you do take part and tag Clover too!
I’m really sorry if this seems ungrateful, I do really appreciate the thought and if I was producing different content with a different audience I think they would have loved it!
That is all for tonight lovelies, I hope you enjoyed my little update and I hope I have made things a little clearer for you as to what is happening. If you have any questions, do ask them below and I will answer them asap. If you enjoyed this post, please leave a like.
I look forward to seeing you tomorrow,
